California Schools on Lockdown After Bomb Threat

All California schools remain locked down after a bomb threat yesterday morning (Wednesday).

In a Facebook post from the California R-1 School District, the threat was immediately reported to law enforcement and an investigation is ongoing.

No facility use will be available during the lockdown.

The threat was emailed to the Middle School principal, indicating that a bomb had been placed in one of the district’s buildings and would detonate within 48 hours.

Canine officers trained in explosives detection were taken through the middle and high schools but did not hit on anything.

According to superintendent Dwight Sanders, if no satisfactory conclusion is reached by Monday, the start of school could be pushed back.

No students were in any of the buildings, however teachers preparing for the start of school, were evacuated.
